Great shot of the stained glass Sarah
Wow what a beautiful window... as for toy boys.....
Well I did say to hubby that after our 25th anniversary this year I was going to swap him for a toy boy He just laughed

Castle Ashby Lake
Went to Castle Ashby gardens this afternoon for a walk whilst Andy was out on his bike. Very pretty and well kept even at this time of year. Need to go back here in a couple of weeks when the daffodils that are planted all round the lake are out and there is a better sky.

very NICE shot Sarah .....
Very nice - you just need a bride and groom perched on the bridge
Oh God, not wedding photography, did one last year, never again.
Nice - I think I'd have gone for tighter on the left and more on the right though - portrait works well
I would like to have gone more that way as well Jim, but apart from a bit of rough path there is nothing nice that side, it might look better when there is some more vegitation & the bulbs are out as they will soften & hide stuff. All the nice trees and interest are on the lake side.
I was thinking more about the rear span of the bridge which gets clipped - though no point in composing to include it if the foreground gets messy
I'm going back in a couple of weeks for the bulbs, so will try to get a shot that includes the rear span if the daffs hide the rough bits.
Beautiful place and beautiful photo!.... Rat and I went last year and definitely on the cards again soon
Playing catch up Sarah, sorry. The lego man is great, really good idea. The stained glass window has great light, really makes it shine. Its a shame to see the old building closed up and maybe the window left to be vandalised. You have found a lovely bridge in todays, a bit of better light and you will be on to a winner.
I really like tree images, but this one is a tree and a bridge together! Great composition, a really nice image
Castle Ashby Lake is a real winner for me - love the reflections, the angle, the composition! I do kind of see the comment about opening up the RHS as well though, maybe next time...doesn't overly detract from this one though!
sarah... the glasses is so creative, i saw it on flickr and was drawn to it..
that cheeky lego digger has been busy..probably round here with the state of our roads..
the bridge is beautiful.
I do like that lake shot Sarah!
I shall go again once the spring starts properly
Thanks Phil, no vandalism on the building, it's right in the centre so lots of cameras round it, They also seem to let it out for events occasionally so fingers crossed it stays in good condition, it is listed as well.
Thanks for that, lego men have been busy round here, most of the roads in the town are like cart tracks.

What Ewe Looking At?
Went out to get a landscape photograph today, as I was meeting Andy at Kelmarsh Hall for a coffee, but got side tracked by a field of lambs. Well, who could resist lambs? Not me

That's a lovely photo of the sheep, Sarah, that little one looks quite curious about you!
They were quite curious, but I was talking to them and making whistling noises and sheep noises. Any passers by would have had me sectioned
Going to photograph some more next week as lady who works with hubby has some, so can go in the field with them.
Really like that sheep portrait!
Wow, lucky you!
I would much rather spend time in a field of sheep than a field of cows. Cows are very sinister
Not bad - Not Baaad at all
oh that's gorgeous! Were you in the field with them? I was looking for something to shoot the other day and found a great field but it had sheep at one end and, for some reason, I'm scared they're going to chase and bite me!
Lovely sheep portraits the lamb is gorgeous
...especially with mint sauce....
I like cows as well
No, they were right next to the gate, they won't chase you unless you get too close to the lambs & won't bite. Although when my son was very small I convinced him they turned feral when they had lambs
LOL that was Sunday lunch last week
Awww now that's a cute shot! lovely
I like that sarah! Lovely capture!
Thanks Trace & Jake
I know, but I always feel guilty about loving looking at them in the spring and then cheering when new seasons lamb comes into the shops

Where racing tyres go to shuffle their mortal coil. Popped in to visit my brother Frazer & Dad today & shot this in their yard at Jedi Racing Cars.

I like it! Looks good
Nice conversion - bloody awful subject Although it does have a certain something about it
Great image. I think you have given it a bit of a depressing title though. Should have gone with "Future Swings" - sounds much more optimistic
Look good in mono and I like the different tread patterns
